Synopsis:
The Republic is in crisis, torn by plague and conflict. The Sith roam unchecked, vying with one another to dominate the galaxy. But one lone Jedi, Kerra Holt, is determined to take down the Dark Lords -- one act of sabotage at a time. Her enemies are strange and many: Lord Daiman, who imagines himself the creator of the universe; Lord Odion, who intends to be its destroyer; the curious siblings Quillan and Dromika; the enigmatic Arkadia. So many warring Sith weaving a patchwork of brutality -- with only Kerra Holt to defend the innocents caught underfoot. Sensing a sinister pattern in the chaos, Kerra embarks on a journey that will take her to many worlds and into fierce battles against even fiercer enemies. With one against so many, her only chance of success lies with forging alliances among those who serve her enemies -- including a mysterious Sith spy and a clever mercenary general. But will they be her adversaries or her salvation?

Paperback novel includes full-color excerpt from the Dark Horse comic Knight Errant: Aflame.

Reviews:

Review by Akoss2k, USA, 2011
"This was a well written story by Miller. While already proven to be a successful comic book author, with Knights of the Old Republic, he outdoes himself here. The main character, Kerra Holt, as well as most of the other supporting characters, is a well thought out fully developed Protagonist.
"The story is accessible, believable, quick paced. While coming in at just under 400 pgs, I had no problem finishing it in a couple days. Being well thought out, I would have no problem imagining this as as stand-alone, non-Star Wars, story. That doesn't mean the Star Wars universe was tacked on. But, the story focuses on issues easily relatable. The inclusion of the Star Wars-verse, ensures that it is one of the better entries into the canon. This isn't a story focusing on the struggle of the Jedi Vs. Sith, rather it is a struggle of power and control, featuring the Jedi and Sith. These are not cardboard characters: everyone has their own personalities and agendas. Not everything is black or white.
"Millar is one Star Wars author to watch, like Zahn before him. Star Wars is in good hands: comic or novel format."
Rating: 4.5 / 5
